You have to sanitize in the spring anyway so no biggy.

The reason I use air and anti freeze is because I want to get as much water out of the system as possible so as not to dilute the anti freeze and make it less effective. Everyone has their own method but the is just the way I do it.

As for the refrigerator, I make sure that the anti freeze gets into the ice maker and comes out the cold water tap in the door. This is just to make sure that the anti freeze has made its way through the water line to the refrigerator. If there is water in that line it could cause a problem that I wouldn't want to try to fix.

How do you get the antifreeze into the lines? Run the pump with a hose dropped into the AF jug ?

Kenny,
On my Berkshire, there is a compartment on the passenger side of the coach that has the water pump in it. There is a hose that area that is attached to the pump that you can put into the jug and when you turn on the pump, it will suck the anti freeze into the pump and pump it through the water lines. Just be aware that there are a couple of valves that need to be turned in order to suck the anti freeze out of the jug and not try to take water from the fresh water tank.
When you look at it you will see how this works.
Tom

Haven't read the book yet, but is there any action needed for the on demand hot water heater?

On the tankless water heater there is a drain valve at the back of the heater. To access pull off the wood panel that covers the area of the heater. You should see a small white valve that should be opened to drain any water from the heater chamber as part of the winterizing process.

I found the best way to winterize is to take the coach to Florida. Jim

That's what we are doing this year except we are heading for Texas. Won't be back to Michigan until it's warm.
